Rain or Shine

I've teamed up with DSW to showcase how I'm styling my DSW boots in January. Because rain or shine, my ankle boots are my new go-tos for a utilitarian look with sartorial appeal!

On the occasional rainy nights in LA, I'm usually tucked away in bed with a mug of hot chocolate in one hand and a good book nestled in the other. They're mere props as I predictably will quickly doze off to the pitter-patter of raindrops bulleting against my windows. But last Saturday, I was lulled out of bed by the promise of a super fun night. I stomped all over LA in my boots while wearing layers upon layers hopping from improv night at IO West, a froyo refuel at Frog, and ending the night playing pieces of childhood at Eighty Two, the best (and only) barcade and bar of nostalgia in town. 

A few days later, I wore the same boots and the same outfit to a Parisian brunch at L'Amande, a new bakery in Beverly Hills serving the best selection of croissants this side of Paris. Even though it was sunny outside and I was melting like a Twix bar in a sauna, I was determined to wear the outfit as I couldn't think of anything more fitting to wear while sipping cafe au lait and nibbling on croissants and croque monsieurs. Okay, let's replace nibble with devour.
